Trading X Vario and Q for CL

Recommended Posts

Thanks for that very detailed response.  I rented an M10 awhile back and was impressed with how much I could bring up the shadows and make some other adjustments.  I hope the CL produces similar files.  I never warmed to the Q.  The fixed wide lens just wasn't working for me.  I enjoyed the X Vario more except for having to use the lousy external EVF.  Both on are their way to Leica Store Miami for a trade.  Still haven't made any final decisions.

The CL  has a slightly higher photographic dynamic range than the M10, so no problems in pulling up the shadows.

Thanks for that info.  I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Update:

Thanks so much to everyone for encouraging me. Over the weekend, I bought a barely used CL from Miami Leica (I must have spotted it on line the moment they posted it because they never even got the details up). I talked with Josh there--very helpful--and it should arrive on Thursday. 

I'm completely besotted with my Q and will certainly keep it (or its eventual successor the Q7, with its 8 tps sensor producing 600 gigabyte files and roasting my coffee beans on demand). Initially, I'm using it with my legacy manual focusing Nikon glass until I get a sense of how it will complement the Q--with its 1/2 sensor, certainly that includes telephoto photography. It's really nice that the cameras share the same batteries.

again, thanks, and looking forward to sharing photos with everyone here!

I fear your Q might be gathering dust :p , at least for a while.

as long as that dust is not in the sensor.... 😀
